Pilates with Maxine Brown

Mondays | 6:00pm - 7:00pm | £6

Pilates is for everyone; young or old, fit or out of shape, flexible or less so.

Pilates is a gentle but challenging low-impact form of exercise with a focus on the core and postural muscles, working to align the spine and improve posture. Gentle and safe, each class is open level and offers options for all students, from beginner to advanced.

A series of controlled, precise movements is designed to stretch and strengthen muscles without adding bulk and you will notice how your body adapts to the exercises in a matter of weeks, improving conditioning, and creating balance in your body.
Lifestyle and occupational hazards can mean that we forget how to move efficiently and this can put a strain on the body. Pilates is a great way to “re-educate” our bodies.

Many exercises take place in reclining or sitting positions that doesn’t put pressure on your joints, making it suitable for everyone.

Works well as part of a weight loss programme. Mats provided. Classes are drop-in, with no advance booking necessary.

Leggings and t-shirts or other comfortable clothes are perfect for most classes. Some classes recommend specific dance shoes, but otherwise bare feet is fine. Check with us in advance if you are unsure: 0151 708 8810.

Payments & Pricing

Class prices vary, and some are subsidised through our charitable funding. All classes are payable on the day in cash, unless otherwise stated - for example, a number of classes ask for payment for a full term in advance (specified on the listing). A number of classes are also available to book online in advance - a "book now" button will appear where this is the case.

For all classes run by MDI teachers (Beginners & Open Ballet, Beginners & Open Contemporary, Pro Class) you can purchase a 10 Class Card, which can be used across any combination of these classes. Please note that all 10 classes must be taken within one year of purchase, and cannot be used for MDI summer courses.

Term Dates

Our classes follow the academic year, with a reduced timetable during half-term or other holidays for Liverpool schools, and will be highlighted as such. To check school holiday dates, please visit liverpool.gov.uk
